Once the conversation period was over and they had completed their post-conversation questionnaires, participants had the opportunity to seek out their partners in the room.Some people made a beeline for the door, clearly not excited to meet their partners.Over 45 minutes, you and the person we have paired you with will talk about a series of particular topics designed to help you get close.
But we wanted to take it a step further: what if participants didn’t even know what their partner looked like?
After that, you will be given 10 minutes to individually complete a post-conversation questionnaire reflecting on your experience.
We set the timer for the first 15 minutes and the room immediately filled with the sound of fingers clacking on keyboards.
The purpose of this exercise is to form a sense of intimacy between you and your partner at an accelerated pace.
Once the conversation period begins you may exchange names with your partner.
